Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday lashed out at the political leaders who have been asking for a proof of the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29. He said that there was “no need of certificate by political leaders to prove the bravery of the jawans.”

He also lashed out at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi for his controversial ‘Khun ki dalali’ remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying “there was 'dalali' in 2006 during the submarines deal and there was also 'dalali' during the sale of helicopters.”
